    Including everything, $53.3 Billion for 2012.

    IF my math is correct that's approximately 40% of our current budget deficit.

    It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to borrow money we don't have only to give it away, much of it to countries that don't even like the US.
  2. I agree, a great place to start with cutting the budget. Absolutely.

    And that was just on condoms for the Olympians! :eek:
  4. "How stupid can we be?"

    Stupid enough to elect obama , does that answer your question?

    I think your math is off. Did you mean 4%?
  6. your math is incorrect.

    You are correct, thanks for pointing it out.

    (I still thinks it's a waste of money we don't have to waste though)
  8. Good ol Luke, yesterday couldn't spell or type. Today you can't multiply.

    Lemme guess, it was the spell checker:D

    In Lucrum's defense he was once seen in the same room as an arithmetic textbook. The witnesses were no less surprised than you or I would be.
  10. Worse, he thinks 53 billion is 4 percent of 15 trillion.

    I thought windows based laptops have calculators built in?:confused:
